The event features the leading Roman research society, Ermine Street Guard, and includes displays of weaponry, warfare and battle tactics. You can see how a Roman soldier would have trained, enjoy the firing of artillery pieces, marvel at wonderful authentic replica armour and wander round a static army camp display. Discover the remedies used to treat everything from sore, marching feet to battle wounds and challenge an opponent at Tabula, a game the Roman Soldiers played during their spare time.
The Ermine Street Guard is a society dedicated to research into the Roman Army and the reconstruction of Roman armour and equipment. It gives public displays at major Roman sites throughout the UK and Europe. Each piece of equipment is made as authentically as possible, based on recent research.
